Ruminating over cappuccino in Rome.

I am an adjunct professor of theology for a pontifical seminary and various U.S. study-abroad programs in Rome, specializing in ecumenism, ecclesiology, and the Church of Rome.

I am also a doctoral candidate in Ecumenism and Dialogue at the Pontificia Universita San Tommaso d’Aquino in Urbe, more commonly known as the Angelicum.

In my spare time I serve on the board of directors for the University of Notre Dame Alumni Association, representing alumni and friends throughout Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

I am grateful to be an alumnus the Lay Centre at Foyer Unitas, my home in Rome for four years. I spend my summers teaching intensive international programs there.

[This blog does not represent the Centro Pro Unione in Rome, though naturally i am a fan. I actually picked the name of the blog before moving to Rome and encountering the center.]

    Hallo A. J.!
    Good to have found myself in your blog. Please kindly locate me a congregation or diocese that ‘stands’ late foreign priestly vocation.

    I appreciate your blog and the work (and studies) you are doing in the Eternal City. I’m looking into studying at the Angelicum myself. Please send me an e-mail when you get a chance to talk about studies there and life in Rome.

    God bless,

    Hi AJ, it was great seeing you at St. James Cathedral Midnight Mass in Seattle this year. What a surprise and treat. I hope to hear more from you when time permits. Good fortune in your continuing studies. Nancy Walton-House

  7. A.J.: Feel free to use my teaching website since you are teaching a course with that title, with the condition that you contribute to its revision which I will undertake in November-=December 2014. Will be Trastevere late September through late October. Let’s connect on Linkedin, and maybe meet and chat in Rome.
